Why Game Of Thrones’ Oona Chaplin Had Such A Hard Time Filming The Red Wedding

In 2019, Entertainment Weekly published an oral history of the Red Wedding, for which they spoke with the cast, “Game of Thrones” book series author George R.R. Martin, director David Nutter, and showrunners David Benioff and David Weiss. The conversation turned to the emotional aspect of the actors having to film such a horrendous sequence — naturally, crying was involved. And, in Oona Chaplin’s case, the emotion was even getting in the way of the scene. 

The actor revealed, “I was actually crying while I was dead. The director had to come over: ‘Oona, you need to stop crying, dead people don’t cry. You’re dead, just be dead.'”

Chaplin was far from the only person on set who started crying while watching the action unfold. Nutter added that when he noticed members of the crew crying, he was certain that those emotions would translate on screen for viewers to witness.

Further, Benioff revealed that he caught the script supervisor crying after they shot the moment that Robb dies. He concluded, “It’s a bittersweet thing. You’re making all these people sad. But on the other hand, that’s kind of the idea. If we shot The Red Wedding and nobody got emotional, it would be a failure.”
